To Brenda and Travis and Auntie Patsy, Marie, Janet, Dale and all your families. My sincerest sympathy for you in your great loss. The world is a much sadder place without Billie. My memories of Billie begin with him as a young child running across the yard with joy in every step he took. And that is how he went through life, running at it with joy in every step. He was a dedicated husband and a tremendous, loving father. He always had the time to stop and visit with anyone who needed a listening ear. He was very family oriented. I will miss his crazy sense of humour and especially his smile.

Brenda and Travis, Auntie Patsy, Marie, Janette, Dale and families:
We were very sorry to hear about Billy. Our hugs and prayers for all of you. We are going to miss him. We didn't see him very often but we always knew he was there. I remember the summers we had together as kids. Billy was the youngest. I can see him now - always on the run with a twinkle in his eyes, making you wonder what he was up to next. As we got older there were family get togethers and many great visits. So many wonderful memories, some so funny. I won't go into any of those stories here for fear of incriminating myself or others and creating fireworks??? Billy, we will miss you and love you forever.
Your cousins: David and Michaeleen, Debbie, George, Dallon, Aaron, and Mason, David, Bev, and Zenon

Dear Brenda and Travis, Bill was so loved by all of us and will be missed so much. I have so many memories of Bill and the jokes he enjoyed but also the joy he brought to many people. Christmas family gatherings, times spent at the lake with Mom and Maurice are just a few of the memories we all have. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
With love from,
Sue, Allen and Ariel

Brenda, Travis and all the family,
So sorry for your loss
It is difficult to put our feelings into words
Bill was such a great cousin
He always had a joke or story that made you smile and laugh
His laughter was infectious
You always knew where to find Bill in a crowd, just follow the laughter
He had a way that always made you feel special
Many, many wonderful memories
Thinking of you all during this very sad time

With my deepest sympathies Brenda and Travis, Aunt Patsy, Marie and Gordon, Jannette and Bill, Dale and Laurie. I have such fond memories of Bill from our childhood. He was always happy, laughing, joking and all with that special mischievous twinkle in his eye. He will be dearly missed by all.

Brenda, Travis, and family,
My thoughts are with you and my heart is heavy. I am grateful that I was able to 'attend' via livestream, if not for such a tragic reason. I was just saying the other day one of my most vivid memories of Bill has to be the time he got me to do something and said he'd give me 5 bucks. I got really excited and did whatever it was, I've since forgotten. I come back into the room all proud and ask him for my 5 bucks, to which he gets down on all fours and says "climb on!" I was so embarrassed that he'd tricked me and he laughed so hard! I thought I'd prank the prankster and snuck Tabasco sauce onto the lip of his next drink. Turns out he was allergic and it wasn't anywhere as funny as I'd hoped. I still fondly remember the back yard and beach volleyball games, cranked tunes, and all around good times. This earth has one less good guy on it.

Take much care,
Randi
